Jen McLaughlin - Guest DT

We have another fabulous Guest DT for you this week.
Jen McLaughlin
And here is her beautiful creation using Thanks Mum...

Isn't this gorgeous!?! I love the purple!!

And here is a little bit about Jen...

I live in Bethpage, TN.  We've been here 5 years, but our hometown is Marysville, Washington, which is where most of our friends and family still are today.  I have two handsome sons, Nate is 20 and my youngest, Dennis is 17 and graduating this year.  Oh dear!!   I started scrapbooking when my kids were just learning to walk.  I am so thankful today that I took the time to do that.  Time goes by so fast and we often enjoy looking back and reminiscing on old times. It was one of those Creative Memories classes for me too.   One lesson and I was hooked!  I started card making just over a year ago and I'm addicted!  I'm not really sure what my style is because I like to try them all.  In the beginning I only used stamps and different forms of inking UNTIL.......I found digi's.  Will I ever be able to sell enough cards to cover the cost?  probably not!  Do I care? - NOPE!!  I love them too much.  As a young artist I enjoyed coloring and shading and was thrilled when I found an outlet for it today.    I started my own personal blog almost a year ago to keep up with all the challenges and meet new friends.   I 've met the most wonderful people from all over the world and thank God that I have them in my life.
Don't forget about the Thanks Mom Challenge this week.
A Michelle Perket Image is required.
One lucky winner will receive an image of their choice from Michelle's Etsy Store!
